Im not dx yet,but am now doing exploreing do to profound diarrhea,thats lasted for 3 months or longer.
Im not new to the autoimmune tho, I have ms.
On a ms forum,someone mentioned,crohns on a tread I made about
This made me google it ,and it is shocking what I read.
I was told,by my pcp,that if it comes back,after a round of medrol pack,to come back,and she will order a few stool samples,and a colonoscopy
I read the list of crohns sx,and I had many of them.
one that shocked me the most was the fatigue.
I knew that ms can cause fatigue,which I have,but it is more profound than even my neuro knew about
My pcp and I have been fighting the subject of fatiuge for over 2 years now.
The medrol did work,but only for the duration of the steroids did it work.
the day after I was done with the pack,the diarrhea came back!!
and its not just loose stools,it like water.
No single diet I eat seems to make it better or worse.
Im not really scared at the fact it may be crohns,but im really frustrated at the fact that I cant seem to get the diarrhea to stop.
After I eat,within 5 mins,i have to run to the bathroom,about
1,000 times a day.
I have even had accidents while shopping,and even at home,cause I cant seem to make it to the bathroom in time.
My question is what can I expect if my pcp does go ahead and go trough the dx process for crohns?
